Wrong Film--Not About Mental Illness or R.D.Laing
This film is called To Be a Man, and has no apparent connection with R. D. Laing or mental illness. It was made in the 60s.
Aside from not being the film it's supposed to be, it is an interesting look at what young people in the 60s were told meant to be a man, and their own views about that. I certainly found it worth watching.
